Well, it took almost nine full days before Oreo the cat was rescued from the tree she had gotten stuck in. Over the weekend I received a voice mail message from the family letting me know the news.
For those who are interested, the fire department can come out to help, but the firefighters I spoke with last week told me that they often can be more harm than help. The noise and commotion caused when they bring a ladder truck out often causes the treed cat to react in one of two ways: climb higher or jump.
I also spoke to a local man who has a tree service who offered his help.
Turns out the neighbors helped rescue Oreo from her predicament.
I'll have more on the story soon.
